Kotaku writes: "The story goes a little something like this: Britain's Daily Telegraph runs a story with the headline "Schoolboy hangs himself after row over Nintendo Wii". Said story suggests that the 13 year-old boy "hanged himself with his school tie" after his parents had confiscated his Wii following some bad behaviour.
The headline and presence of the Wii was enough to give the Telelgraph's (relatively) sensible story some traction, get a bunch of other news outlets and websites thinking - and reporting - that he killed himself. Over a Wii. Pity it's all a load of rubbish."
